Language of Materials
The collection is arranged in volume order. The item field represents the publication's issue number. On some issues, there are a variety of publication conventions, such as: no printed issue number, words in place of issue number, or misnumbered print run. For example, the phrase "New Student Edition," "Orientation," or "Extra" may appear instead of an issue number. When permissible the finding aid best represents the information found on the front page.
